Maxillofacial Shields

The Gentex Maxillofacial Shields (MFS) safeguard the lower face from rotor wash, flying debris and windblast during helicopter operations. An optional upgrade to Gentex HGU-56/P, HGU-84/P, or SPH-5® Rotary Wing Helmet Systems, the MFS significantly enhances communications clarity by reducing wind noise across the boom microphone.


HGU-56/P & 84/P Maxillofacial Shield

An optional upgrade to Gentex HGU-56/P and HGU-84/P Rotary Wing Helmets, the MFS safeguards the wearer’s lower face from rotor wash, flying debris, and windblast during helicopter operations. The protective shield attaches to the helmet with a complete installation kit, weighs less than five ounces, and offers an interface between shield and visor that reduces wind on the face. The shield also offers ballistic fragmentation protection up to 550 feet per second (fps). Kits can be custom painted, and are compatible with Mike Lites™. A standard wire boom microphone or Gentex Flex Boom Microphone can be positioned behind the MFS, which significantly enhances communications clarity by reducing wind noise across the microphone(s). The HGU-56/P MFS comes standard with dual side release latches that provide for positive lock and ambidextrous quick release of the shield, and is available in one size that fits all. The MFS HGU-84/P version attaches to the helmet with adjustable straps and snaps, and comes in two sizes (Medium/Large or X Large/X Large Wide).
